Since Henry Adams Bellows' translation of the Poetic Edda is in the public domain, there are numerous versions of it available on Amazon. I tried a bunch of them on my Kindle, and have decided that this one is the best. Editor Carl Campbell has conveniently located all the footnotes to the end of each chapter, and then provides a link on each verse number to whisk you instantly to the footnote text. With a click of the back-arrow you are back to the poem. This is *so* much easier than paging back-and-forth between poem and footnotes. And if you don't want the distraction, you can just read the poem without bothersome footnotes to skip over.

Keep in mind that this volume only includes the Mythological Poems (vol 1 of Bellows' work) -- you can find Campbell's companion volume for the Hero Poems at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005V1EQAI

I found this to be a very interesting book. For the price it can't be beat if you are interested in poetry or early literature.

Verses were hard to make out on some pages. The styling was alright. Simple book, but for a dollar, what could I ask for.
